1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you use a Mac, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Should have read the wording fully. Charges, but will not sync with a Mac, number of Mac users these days it should really be made clear. Quick delivery though!

Great on their own, put 2 together and the stereo separation is stunning! Sound is a little 'warm' for my usual taste but they work very well with folk and acoustic music. Recommended!

This printer won't work with OSX 10.9 this has been confirmed by DELL. Tried with 10.8 and that seems ok.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy!, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks ok but the screws holding the grill to the frame are not fit for purpose, I've had to put extra washers on.
Also the frame isn't finished, 'lump of metal' stuck out in one corner that i'll have to file off!
Get what you pay for I guess :(

1.0 out of 5 stars oh dear!, 12 Sep 2012
This review is from: Air Cut: Remastered (Audio CD)
Having revisited this album again after nearly 40 years, I can only say time hasn't improved it. Lets say at the off the I am/was a big Curved Air fan seeing them many times in the 70's and still play the first 3 albums regularly. The problem with Air Cut is down to the departure of Francis Monkman and Daryl Way, unfortunately dear sweet deluded songstress that Sonja is, lost her quality control, resulting in appalling lyrics and overblown instrumentation, having said that you cant fault the musicianship on the album, which is excellent. I remember 'Sounds' reviewing it at the time and describing it as (I was appalled at the time 'not My Curved Air') "banal and naive"....I couldn't agree more. Stick to 2nd album!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than 60's influence....., 17 July 2011
This review is from: Colour Of The Trap (Audio CD)
Maybe it's just me but I get the feeling that Miles was channeling "Slider" era Marc Bolan when recording this...Very similar melodies and even some of the vocals have Marcs slight 'wobble'. Not a bad thing, in fact helps turn what could have been a mediocre 60's throwback into something quite special. Well worth a listen.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product!, 1 Jun 2011
I'm not usually one for writing reviews, but had to write to reverse the opinion of the previous reviewer.
As a 50+ male who has been using this product for several years I can't rate it high enough, a small amount is all that's needed - it will then absorb quickly and easily. The smell ok, does take a bit of getting used to but its not off putting. As far as working is concerned, I feel that it may not reduce the signs of aging but it does seem to slow down the degeneration process, I have a paranoia about looking old and I think this product makes me feel as if its slowing down the years.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great when working,but...., 19 Jan 2011
1st one gave great display but microphone didn't work, very quickly replaced by Amazon. Replacement worked very well for 2 weeks then, mic stopped working. When it does work, it's a very good product, high def video and excellent sound, just seems...unreliable? snet back for credit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mac users BEWARE!, 4 Jan 2011
I was so looking forward to using this product as on paper it looked ideal, as I had a fair few negs to scan, but not that many that warranted paying a couple of hundred quid for a scanner.
The product is nicely packed and presented, but when will manufacturers recognise that Mac users are a significent minority and make your product compatible! or at the very least please state that it will not work with Mac OS. It's fine saying that it will work with every version of Windows but you can't omit Macs from the product description and let people presume that it's not compatible, after all it's probably Mac users who are likely to use this type of product!

Exspect Leather Hard Flip Case for iPhone 4 - Black

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing..., 25 Aug 2010
Bought this on the strength of the version for the iphone 3g which was an excellent product.
This unfortunately has several flaws.
1) as mentioned by several reviewers the camera hole partially obscures the flash,giving a halo effect to photographs.
2) The sides look as if they have been built up from the iphone 3 version and it looks shoddy.
3) after less than 4 weeks the fastener has come loose and will not stay in position, subsequently the front just 'flops down"
Altogether a big let down.
